MATCH REPORTS SATURDAY 23rd MAY

Bronwydd were unable to continue their fine start to the season on Saturday having to settle for a ”loosing draw” away to Cowbridge.

The home team batted first and Michael Lloyd and Thomas Merilaht put on 48 for te first wicket but the real damage was done when Bronwydd were unable to break the partnership between Merilaht and skipper Neil Brand as the pair put on 144 for the second wicket . Kevin Morgan tried all his bowling options but Tom Gleeson took the only two wickets to fall as  Merilhat 70 and Brand 120 no pushed the Cowbridge total to 241.

The opening partnership of Oli Furneaux 22 and Byron Jones 33  put on 61 for the first wicket but as has happened in the past the loss of one wicket started a collapse and Bronwydd were soon in all sorts of trouble at 64 for 5. Phillip Howell with 16 and Meirion Davies 21 went some way to repair the innings pushing the score to 102 but as earlier in the innings Bronwydd were unable to build partnerships letting Cowbridge  push for victory and at 112 for 9 defeat was there for the home team’s taking but Kevin Morgan was joined by 14 year old Tomos Jones and the pair batted out the final 13 overs to deny Cowbridge the victory points.

Bronwydd next play Measteg at home next Saturday

 



 

In their third league match of the season Bronwydd CC 2nd XI travelled to Merthyr Tydfil with four changes in the team’s personnel but in buoyant mood on the back of two auspicious early performances. Having won the toss for the first time in the season, Bronwydd skipper Dorian Jones elected to put the hosts into bat on a wicket with more curves than Marilyn Monroe.

Despite the favourable bowling conditions, some uncharacteristically sloppy fielding allowed the Merthyr Tydfil 2nd XI batsman to score more runs than the bowling attack should have allowed. But both Matthew Bagshaw and Carwyn Francis took three wickets each to help bowl out the home side eventually for a total score of 164 in 46.3 overs. 

After tea, the Bronwydd batsmen soon found themselves in trouble against the pace of Andrew Murphy, who took five wickets in total (including four of Bronwydd’s top order). Bronwydd wickets fell steadily throughout the late afternoon as the raucous confidence of the hosts increased. Some outlandish shot-selection and impatience among the Bronwydd batsmen made light work for the bowlers. When Murphy took his final scalp in the 36th over the visitors were still 49 runs short of the modest total set by the home team. For the Bronwydd team there were very few highlights to celebrate but many object-lessons in concentration, application and determination to be learnt before their next match at home at Cnwc-y-Deri on Saturday at 1.30 against Porthcawl 2nd XI.
